Chambers Global, 2016
We feel honored to work with Till Kosche and his team from Noerr on Project Galaxy to acquire FLEX. Competition was intensive, challenges were numerous and timetable was tight; Noerr team always responded with superb effort and professional work. We appreciate Noerr’s great contribution to our first successful M&A transaction in Germany.
Minda Huang, General Counsel, Chervon
We feel pleased to work with Till Kosche and his Noerr team on our first acquisition involving complex antitrust matters in Europe. He lead us professionally through the entire transaction and the Noerr team has great experience on dealing with M&A and antitrust issues. We appreciate Noerr’s great work on our first German M&A transaction.
Max Chen, Investment Department Manager, Energas Group
We see external legal advisors as an extension of our legal team. Dr. Till Kosche understood this clearly earlier in the process and provided an exceptional support. Always on top of the discussions, he provided precise and wise advice, both with respect to negotiation strategy and risk identification and mitigation. Besides, he truly understands the particularities of Chinese clients, anticipating scenarios and accommodating requests that could seem unreasonable to inexperienced eyes.
Although not always on the spotlight, throughout the process, it was easy for us to identify the key role played by Dr. Andrea Zwarg starting from the legal due diligence up to post-closing. She made sure every detail was taken care of, including those that were not in our radar. She showed patience and knowledge in providing precise and clear answers to questions that would not usually be raised by local clients. A reliable advisor that makes even the most complicated matter look easy to solve.
William M. Pedroso, Legal Director, Fosun Group
Through the M&A transaction both Joyson and Noerr have established a strategic co-operation relationship. Noerr not only provided high-quality professional legal services, they also assisted us in bridging the cultural distance in such international transactions. They helped us to manage the entire M&A procedure too. We will be very happy if we can expect the full assistance of Noerr in the future concerning our cooperation with Preh GmbH. Furthermore, we will be happy to introduce Noerr to other Chinese companies for their investment in Germany.
Jimmy Guo, Vice President, Joyson Holding Co., Ltd
We have been working with Dr. Till Kosche and the Noerr team on our first successful M&A transaction in Germany, thanks to their professional service. Though the timetable was very tight and negotiations were intense, Dr. Till Kosche always kept in mind to protect our best interest and provide practical legal advice. After the acquisition, we are fully convinced about Noerr and engaged them as our long term regular legal counsel.
Hongsheng Guo, Chairman and President of Shenyang Blue Silver Industry Automation Equipment Co., Ltd
The Noerr team led by Till Kosche [...] provided the highest quality advice in the com-plex participation in the Schwing group. Our project posed numerous challenges and the Noerr team always responded with superb effort against tight timelines. Till Kosche [...] (is) our preferred choice when it comes to M&A work in Germany.
